      This is a GREAT message. You have to adjust to a new life if training with the hip dictating what you can do and when you can do it. But staying optimistic is key! Thanks for posting!

      Hey WedgeC

      I had my THR not long after you, and ‘rollercoaster’ is a good way to put recovery. My challenges were with my physio (again) and a mystery infection that was sucking a lot of joy out of daily life this spring.

      Since I’m a ridiculously injury-prone runner (probably due to hypermobility), I introduced dynamic warm-ups a few years ago and I do find the first part of my run feels so much more pleasant with properly-revved up muscles. And, bonus, the avg pace effortlessly gets a bit faster. Hope you get to enjoy the same benefit!

      Thanks for the reminder about balance. I definitely notice the difference on my operated leg, but man I do find balance exercises a giant snooze!

      Bon courage & bonne continuation as they say over in my parts (France), and keep us updated!
